I've been making golf skorts with an attached matching, cotton-crotch lined panty instead of the usual shorts found in commercial skorts. It is much cooler and provides the right amount of modesty. Both patterns are from QwikSew; the panty from their Sewing Beautiful Lingerie book, the skort from a new pattern.

A Further note: I used KS3341 and a 4 way stretch, lightweight fabric even though the pattern says it's for woven only. Works really well and I love the fact that there are no pant legs to ride up! It would make a great pattern for girls as well,

what a great idea! I toyed with the idea of attaching the shorts directly to the skirts, but they also love to wear tights on occassion so decided against it, but for summer that would be perfect!
